Police arrest former employees of MFM for threatening its CSO

The Police have arraigned 2 men for allegedly threatening the Chief Security Officer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries, Olatubosun Odumosu.

The accused, Michael Nwaogu and Simon Akagwu were arraigned before the Yaba Magistrates’ Court on 3 counts.

It was learnt that Nwaogu and Akagwu had worked for Odumosu, who also owned a security firm.

Nwaogu had reportedly complained that Odumosu maltreated him while he worked for him and planned a revenge. He was said to have discussed the plan with Akagwu.


Odumosu claimed that 4 threat messages were sent to his phone.


He alleged that Akagwu was the only one who had the knowledge of the information contained in the text messages, so he got arrested with Nwaogu and they have both been arraigned in court.


The charges read in part,

“That you, Nwaogu Michael and Akagwu Simon, on July 28, 2015, did threaten to kill one Olatubosun Odumosu, by sending him a written messag and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 230 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.”

The defendants pleaded not guilty.


The Magistrate, Mrs. O. A. Erinle, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N50, 000.
